Shakib Al Hasan displayed an angry outburst o the field during the Dhaka Premier League match on Friday has cost him big time as the all-rounder is set to get a four-match ban.
Mohammedan Sporting Club cricket committee chairman Masuduzzaman dissatisfied with the call said that they will appeal to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to dig into the matter as to why a player of the calibre of Shakib Al Hasan resorted to such behaviour.
”We have not got any official letter so far but we have learnt that the umpires committee have recommended four-match ban,” Masuduzzaman told Cricbuzz on Saturday.
”We will appeal to the board and ask them that they must dig the matter and see why Shakib was prompted to take such a step. Naturally, it was not acceptable but at the same time we have to find out why it happened,” he said.
Mohammedan’s captain Shakib Al Hasan displayed a very unruly behavior during the match against Abahani Limited of the ongoing Dhaka Premier League on Friday. He lost his composure on two occasions, angry at the on-field umpire’s decision.
The first instance was when kicked, uprooted, and threw the stumps while engaging in a heated argument with the on-field umpire after he was denied an lbw. The second time he lost his temper was when the umpire called off the game due to rain.
After receiving strong criticism for his shocking behavior, Shakib later issued a public apology on his social media account.
“Dear fans and followers, I am extremely sorry for losing my temper and ruining the match for everyone and especially those who are watching from home. An experienced player like me should not have reacted that way but sometimes against all odds it happens unfortunately. I apologise to the teams, management, tournament officials and organizing committee for this human error. Hopefully, I won’t be repeating this again in the future. Thanks and love you all,” the 34-year old wrote in the apology he posted on his Facebook account.
Earlier, former team India opener Virendra Sehwag also showed his disapproval of Shakib’s behaviour through a Twitter post.
